pktcdvd: remove broken dev_t export of class devices
The pktcdvd created class devices only export some sysfs files, but have no char dev_t registered in the driver. At class device creation time they copy the dev_t value of the block device to the char device, wich will register a new char device in the driver core and userspace, with a conflicting dev_t value. In many cases the class devices dev_t just points to a random USB device. This fixes the sysfs "duplicate entry" errors.
